Uh huh.  I'm a loser.  All I've done is pointed out your repeated
semantic arguments and distinctions without a difference.  It sounds
like some cases are redundant but some are only _superfluous_ (and you
really sit there and say you're not making a distinction without a
difference) only so that what you said previously won't be wrong. 
Sounds like backpedalling, not reasonable discourse.

No, it strengthened my argument.  Which is that you keep going on
without factual basis.  My job isn't to counter your arguments, it's to
demonstrate my own.
